JUNE 2024: My novel CATHEDRAL is available in bookshops in the UK and the USA and from online retailers internationally. See the "Books" page on this website for reviews and more details.

My script FUZE - an action movie/thriller for director David Mackenzie and Sigma Films will be shot this summer!

INSIDE, the film whose screenplay I wrote, is now widely available for streaming and on DVD/BluRay. It stars Willem Dafoe.

For the same Greek team that made INSIDE I have started work on writing YUGOSLOVE (working title) - a road movie following a couple journeying around the countries of the former Yugoslavia.

LIMONOV - THE BALLAD (I co-wrote the screenplay with Pawel Pawlikowski and the film's director Kirill Serebrennikov) premiered in Competition in Cannes.

I have just started work on a new screenplay for producer David Kosse at Rockwood Pictures - details to follow.

My last new novel, GHOSTS. has failed to find a publisher, which is very disappointing. Meanwhile I've started work on a further novel, set in the 17th Century Ottoman Empire. It should take some years to write, I fear.
